No sound through the Panasonic cinema surround sound on TV
I have just purchased a Panasonic SC-PT460 home cinema system, i have set it all up and from the DVD, RADIO, IPOD all work really well, what i cant achieve, is to get the sound to come through my theater system, when watching TV, i have the connection to the home cinema via HMI, can you help ? thank you.
Re: No sound through the Panasonic cinema surround sound...
Had a similar problem mate. I solved it by connecting the tv to the PT460 system with a scart lead. You then have to have the AV channel selected on the PT460 system to listen to the tv. You will always have to have the AV channel on the PT460 selected to listen to any sound transmitted through the tv - be it playstation/xbox or any other device that you may connect in the future with HDMI leads or otherwise. Hope this helps

Sometimes these buttons only work for certain formats eg. a cd may not play with more than the front 2 speakers. Also, when you press these buttons are you viewing the home cinema on your tv? It may require you to press the sound/surround button, navigate a menu to select the setting then press OK (this is how my Philips unit works) Hope this helps.
I had the same problem, so i contacted panasonic, I am including the email they sent me.
For connections of audio, so that you can hear all tv audio through the surround system, connect either an optical audio cable or red & white analog audio cables from the tv to the home theater. If you are using optical audio, there is a plug on back of tv labeled for digital audio output and an input on the surround sound system. If you plan on using analog red and white, use the PROG OUT red and white output jacks on the back of the tv to the AUX input on the home theater.
For video connections, to get HD you will need to be using either HDMI or Component cables. HDMI is the cable that will provided 1080p signal (the best HD signal), but if the source does not output 1080p, then your tv will not display 1080p. Most cable boxes output at 1080i or 720p when on HD stations. This signal still provides great picture quality, but HDMI is not needed to get these HD signals. You can use component cables for your cable box and the DVD player output to the tv for video. HDMI might give you a slightly better picture quality but the signal will be the same.
To make the connection, you will want to connect from the cable box to the tv (component or hdmi). Also from the home theater system to the tv using hdmi or the video cables from component (red, blue, & green cables).
do have sound and picture at same time you will need a fibre optical cable, you connect that from your cinema system to your tv. then you need to set your cinema system to digital input or fibre optic or check by pressing aux on your remote and see which is the right one. i am not familier with panasonic as i have samasung.
to see the dvd sound menu option you must be on the correct input selection for your tv. ie. if its Scart, then AV1, or if HD then HDMI 1 etc. then you see the options. as for sound being variable, you can adjust the sound for each speaker in this mode. Main thing for having surround sound with normal TV is to turn on the sound enhancement mode. also, on your viera link on the tv remote, make sure sound its selected as home cinema. word of warning, leave dvd on D-In option, and when turning the TV off, use standby mode, which turns both systems off, ensuring the link does not break.
The HDMI cable connection on your system is a video out to your TV.
To get audio from the TV so you can hear it through the system, you need to add a cable from the audio out of your TV to the "aux" input on the panasonic system. This is most likely a red and white connection which will give you stereo, or pro-logic surround from the home theater system.
